Default Brake light out on 2006 led tail light

How do I fix a brake light that is out on a 2006 sc in the tail light on the passenger side?

Can these be repaired or do I have to change the entire light?

I know you don't have to replace the entire light,but only the bulb. I think there is a screw covered by a little plastic piece on the housing of the light assembly. After popping that cover off & unscrewing the bolt, the entire light should come out, then you'll have access to the bulb....warning (lol)...I'm not with my vehicle, so all of this is off the top of my head.If I've directed him wrong in anyway,please jump in & corrected me....

In the 06 tail lens you have a bulb for the signal light. The rest appears to be LEDs. Check your connections.

I popped off the tab and unscrewed the bolt you mentioned. When you remove the assembly there is only access to the indicator bulb and another plug that when you open simply allows you to see the circuit board inside the assembly. There are a bunch of screws on the back which I unscrewed as well however nothing opens up or at least I couldn't pry anything open without fear of damaging it.

Access to the assembly was very quick, less than 10 minutes. Also the manual as no mention of replacing the led's.

Anyone know of there is a fuse associate with the assembly? The driver side brake light works just passenger side does not. Also a final note, when the headlights are on the passenger side tail light does turn on as well.

What connection is there to check? Just the one wire in your attached picture?

Take a voltmeter and verify you have voltage output on the side where the Tail lens has failed to light up. If you have voltage, then the fuses are working.
